Spies in Frederick County
November 12, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST| Included in Admission, Free for Members
When war came to Frederick, the spies came along with it.
Local historian Matt Borders will reveal the secret history of Frederick’s Civil War. Frederick’s strategic location in Maryland ensured that the secret services of both Union and Confederate sides would square off in this region. Their success or failure at procuring information within the borders of Frederick County could mean the difference between victory and defeat on the battlefield.
Join us through the fall for talks about Frederick and various aspects of its Civil War history.
The talk is included with admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and free for NMCWM members.
